This is the fifth year of the event and organizers say there will be more to see and do.

"We have even more of the big equipment, cranes and cement trucks and excavators, that the kids can get really close to," said Erica Marty, Kids Building Wisconsin Board Member.

More than 3,000 people are expected to attend.
